Why nothing gets done

Wonder why nothing gets done in government -- in fact, it gets worse? Just check out what the Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers' Jason "Trust Fund" Scott decides to harp on the other day:

Sorry Dude. You flubbed it. If you happen to think that the Earth is 10,000 years old it has a hell of a lot to do with our economic growth. It has to do with what kind of brain you have. It reveals whether you are qualified for leadership. It demonstrates whether you will make decisions rationally, after weighting evidence and data, or shrug allow Skydad to work his will. Republicans need to be pilloried for this kind for bullshit.

If you can deny that the Earth is older than the bible says it is, then you can deny virtually anything.

He's referring to what GOP Florida Senator Marco Rubio said in response to the magazine GQ's question "How old do you think the Earth is?"

Iím not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think thatís a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow.

There's absolutely nothing in Rubio's answer which indicates he thinks the Earth is 10,000 years old. He said he is not a scientist and doesn't know. As one commenter pointed out

So how old is the Earth and how did Rubio flub anything? He said he didnít know, which is probably an accurate answer. Is it 1 billion years old? 500 million? 3 billion? What he didnít say, but in your zeal to attack all Republicans you imply, is that he thinks the Earth in 10,000 years old or that he denies the Earth is older than the Bible says (and, while weíre at, can you point me to where in the Bible it says the Earth is only 10,000 years old?).

I think heís right when he says the age of the Earth has nothing to do with how our economy is going to grow.

Exactly. And that's why "Trust Fund" Scott wants to make up stuff that Rubio supposedly believes -- because it diverts from the utter disaster that is the Boss Obama economy. Not to mention, it's not like Rubio thinks there are 57 states. Or that the island of Guam will tip over if too many people inhabit it. Or that half a billion Americans lose their jobs every month there's no recovery bill in Congress. Or that FDR got on television to address the American people. Or wonders if Cuba has a government-run healthcare system. Or ...

As something I read put it, "Better an elected official who believes in Creationism than one who believes in Keynesianism."

It's okay to be wrong on the issues that don't matter if you're right on the ones that do. Which is why liberals try to turn the debate to the issues that don't.

Trust Fund sounds like a real douche, making stuff up about Rubio for no reason other to slander him and to distract people from the failing economy. The commenter at DE Liberal is right about the Bible not saying that the Earth is only 10,000 years old.... that whole notion comes from the 17th century: the Ussher chronology.

Jason Scott is a racist. Period. Every single time any conservative that isn't white makes any sort of comment Trust Fund doesn't agree with, Jason attacks far, far worse than he does white conservatives. Every single time.

"Better an elected official who believes in Creationism than one who believes in Keynesianism."

Imagining things about the past or supposedly calculating the difference between 10,000 solar years and billions of years aside, that's the most relevant point here and now.

Although on a general note, imagining that everything arises from a void until there are some biological brain events which observe the void of their own "Big Bang" in the past is probably linked to the view that you can get more of something (the creation of wealth and things of value) for essentially nothing (shifting paper ponzi around in pyramid $chemes).

Imagining things about the past is fun but people need to be able to focus on reality here and now at some point.

Jason Scott is a racist.

Shrug, probably a Mason...

Kind of ironic that he thinks he knows the age of the earth based on solar years and probably the Cosmos or multiple universes too. But there you go.
